President Maduro proposes creating a law to prohibit contracts with companies that collaborate with Guyana

The President of the Republic, Nicolás Maduro, proposed this Tuesday the creation of a legal text, to prohibit contracting with companies that collaborated with Guyana, and which exploited natural resources in an area to be delimited.

The proposal was presented during the Federal Government Council, where he addressed different announcements to comply with the mandate given by the people last Sunday, December 3, in a consultative referendum.

Specifically, the head of state asserted that this legal regulation must prohibit “the hiring of companies that operate or collaborate in the unilateral concessions given by Guyana in the sea to be delimited.”

For this reason, he asked the president of the National Assembly, Jorge Rodríguez, to carry out within the Parliament the creation of the text.

This Tuesday, the National President delivered to the President of Parliament the draft of the Organic Law for the creation of the state of Guayana Esequiba.

The bill will be debated this Wednesday in a special session.
